Himachal Govt prepares plan to treat 31 lac hectares rain-fed and wasteland: Chief Secy
The Himachal government has prepared a perspective and strategic plan for treatment of 31,12,472 hectare of rain-fed and wasteland amounting to Rs. 4668.71 crore and an amount of Rs 25.66 crore had been spent on watershed during the financial year 2015-16.
This was stated by Chief Secretary V.C. Pharka while presiding over the 8th Meeting of State Level Nodal Agency under Watershed Development Component (WDC) of the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana(PMKSY) held at Shimla today.

Pharka said that the pace and quality of implementation should be enhanced by adopting target oriented approach. He said that the Department should fix quarter-wise targets and the same should be reviewed periodically.

He said that since the working season in the state due to geographical condition is limited to 7-8 months and participation of watershed communities also remains inadequate especially in tribal areas, the implementing authority should ensure optimum use of its resources during the working season.

Chief Secretary said that the Department of Rural Development has prepared an Annual Action Plan for Rs 230.61 crore under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana for the year 2016-17, which has already been posed to Government of India.

He said that the Government of India was providing 5 per cent funds for capacity building and training of stakeholders under PMKSY.
